All About... Double Pointed Needles Part Three

In the third and final part of her How To series on knitting using double pointed needles Debbie Tomkies shows you an unusual way to knit especially comfortable socks - from the seam-free toes up!

Over the past two months Debbie's tutorials explored the versatility of double pointed needles which you can use to create all sorts of seam-free tubes of knitting. To finish the series off Debbie looks at an altenative way of making socks - by turning things upside down and knitting from the toe to the cuff. This technique is popular in Eastern cultures but not so widely used in the UK. However it is a fun and interesting skill to lean and not at all difficult once you are familiar with the basic principles of sock making.

With detailed step by step photos, clear instructions and some all important Top Tips part three of All About... double-pointed needles is in the March 2008 issue of Simply Knitting magazine which is in the shops now.

The pattern to make Debbie's Jacobs Ladder toe up socks is in next month's Simply Knitting magazine (on sale 28 February) but if you can't wait till then click here to take advantage of a special offer price on our Kool Aid kit to make the socks with your own unique hand dyed yarn!
